Another work day entry from Gwen. Looks like they had a productive day! Chances are there was food too since Gwen was there. Her words follow:
The Dammers had another work day this past Sat with 10 volunteers. We started at Chittenden Dam parking lot (4) and made our way past Lefferts Pond and to Wild Cat Rd (4/7). We found an uprooted tree which is right in the middle of the trail, another plugged culvert, several downed trees and of course lots of brush. Another trail cleaned!!! Doug taught Heide how to run a chainsaw so it looks like Doug may be handing the reigns over to Heide. We had 3 chainsaws running and a pole saw that Tim kept busy. The leaves showed lots of color and the day warmed up nicely. Maybe a bit too warm.

This is a photographic report of the trail work. Gwen has uploaded photos to our 2018 Trail Work album on SmugMug from the work days so far and sent along the following description.
As of today the Chittenden Dammers have had three work Saturdays to start getting the trails in shape for the upcoming season. The trails that have been cleaned and de-brushed are: Carmel, 73, 73A, Bloodroot, 7, 7A and around Chittenden Dam. We’ve found downed trees, plugged culverts and lots of brush. Hopefully the weather will cooperate for the next few Saturdays as there’s still a lot left to do.
